School Budgeting in California

The state budget signed several weeks ago required school districts to assume they'd get the same money from the state that they got last year--and to staff accordingly. The CTA thought this was great.

I wonder how the CTA will spin this:
Districts are forbidden to lay off teachers or cut programs, so they better stock up on magic beans because – surprise! – revenues are falling short of projections. The Sacramento Bee reports the state fell $541 million short of July expectations, and there are already signs the state may also miss its August projections.
